MoDOT News Release  Boone County Route OO Bridge Replacement to Start April 28

Work to replace the aging bridge that carries Route OO over Hinkson Creek southeast of Hallsville will start at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28. The route will be closed to traffic until construction of the new bridge is finished on Aug. 10.  The detour routes around the bridge are: Route OO South: North on Route OO, south on Route B, east on Route HH, north on Route Z and north on Route OO. Route OO North:  South on Route OO, south on Route Z, west on Route HH, north on Route B and south on Route OO. A map showing the detours can be found at www.modot.org/central. Signs noting the detour routes will be placed this week to prepare for the upcoming bridge work.  As a result, motorists may encounter short work zones on Friday, Saturday and Monday (April 24, 25 and 27).   This new bridge will be wider than the current bridge by four feet and will have concrete barrier curbs and guardrail, all of which will make travel across the bridge safer.  For more information about these projects or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/central.


Sewer usage has been re-averaged from water usage Jan, Feb and March, 2015. This average will be reflected on the City bill sent to customers the end of April. Whatever your sewer usage/rate is on this bill will be same each month until we re-average again in Jan-March, 2016. If you have any questions or concerns, call Kim or Kenyetta at 696-3885.
